ONE Planet Doctoral Training Partnership: Urban subsurface change driven by storm water management
Exciting research opportunity to identify and characterize the influence of subsurface storage and processes in urban storm water management (see project details for additional information). Starting in the 2020 Fall term, the student will work under the supervision of Dr. Brian F. Thomas, Senior Lecturer in the School of Engineering at Newcastle University.
The School of Engineering hosts numerous research centers, including the Urban Observatory. The Urban Observatory works with local authorities and institutions by providing new ways to tackle a range of challenges. The PhD project would be conducted with an industry partner to ensure that the research works to make real-world differences to sustainability of urban environments.
Background is one of the following disciplines is desirable: hydrology/water resources, hydrogeology, civil engineering. Strong computational skills with programming experience in R, Python, Matlab or similar are preferred but not necessary. Successful candidates are expected to have strong communication skills and will work effectively as part of a team.
A 1000 word research proposal is required in the application process. Contact Dr. Thomas with questions or for additional information: .
